SHOOTING STARS CRUMBLE TO A 2-0 DEFEAT IN THE HANDS OF THE BENIN ARSENALS.

As the 2023/24 NPFL season continues, Shooting stars football club of Ibadan played their first away game of the season as they were the visitors of Bendel Insurance of Benin.
The Oluyole Warriors went into the game with much anticipation and expectations from their fans home and abroad due to their impressive performance in the first game and given that they picked a point in the same fixture last season.The Benin Arsenals who just returned to the country following their exit from the CAF confederations cup were also looking to build on the impressive form which saw them qualify for the super six the last time out.
The game started on a promising note for the host as they looked the more dangerous side attacking the away team from angle. Their effort did not take long to yield results as Ghaly Falke wrongly directed a long searching pass into his own net in the tenth minutes to give the host their deserved lead. A brilliant tactical switch saw the visitors taking the game to the host but, their defense line stood tall to protect the lead for half.
Shooting stars started the second like they ended the first pushing very hard for a leveler but,there was no way through for the Warriors.
In the 79th minutes,the home team put up a good team play once again and found their second goal of the day off the boots of forward E. I. Ogbonda to put the game game beyond Gbenga Ogunbote boys. All efforts to reduce the deficit by Shooting stars went without any positive result as the game ended two nil in favour Bendel Insurance.
